My Turn: Help hold county accountable at mayor’s luncheon

In the Feb. 28 newspaper, there is a nice advertisement for a luncheon with county leadership sponsored by the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce at 11:30 a.m. March 15 at the King Kamehameha Hotel. I urge all those who have been sending written letters to the editor of West Hawaii Today to make an effort to be there and present written questions to our mayor.

Might the Democratic push for reparations benefit Trump?

WASHINGTON — Tiptoeing along the edge of caricature, Sen. Elizabeth Warren says: Native Americans should be “at the table” with African-Americans for a “robust discussion” about making some Americans pay reparations to other Americans to atone for misdeeds by still other Americans. The enumeration of the misdeeds, and the assignment of guilt for them, will presumably come later. What is, however, already clear is that the Massachusetts Democrat is going to need a large table.
